Sony..if you read this...you burned the first gen buyers.
Sep 15, 2011

I am extremely upset with Sony for not making the EVF backwards compatible. There is nothing revolutionary about the NEX-5 successor. This was clearly planned to get users to upgrade. (Also at $350, it is pretty pricey.) I have Nikon lenses made in the early 1960's that I mount and work with on my D200. You UPGRADE a model slightly and burn the first gen NEX buyers? I have spent my last dollar on your system. It is a great imaging camera, but your competitors have great options also.

I bought the NEX-5 over the 4/3s cameras, when I wanted something to mount my legacy glass on. I felt comfortable that Sony, with aspirations of making the "big 2" into the "big 3," would act like the "big 2." I look around, I have 3 Sony TV's, a blue-ray player, a video camera, a VCR, and the NEX-5. And I ask, why?
